    my mac mini is making allot of (what sounds to me like hard drive) noise. Primarily during startup and when I launch applications. This just started today, should I be worried?

    Can you describe the noise? Spinning? Grinding? Clicking?

    What does Disk Utility say? S.M.A.R.T. status? Try verifying the disk.

    Boot up from your Mac OS X discs that came with your computer,and go into disk utility. Click on your HD, and click Repair.
